I guess I have Files' seasons in my head, going from double TCR Germany champ with a Civic to Europe with an i30N... impressive versatility

You are right.
Target raced Seat in 2015 TCR International before switching to Opel for 2016. And when Opel wasn't competitive they switched back to Seat for first two rounds in 2016 TCR Germany when Files raced for them.
After that they get Hondas, and for 2017 TCR Germany they get run Audis parallel to Hondas.
And last year they switched to Hyundai.
Very nice history

Bathurst calling, looking for a full field of 55, that will be a big ask, 30+ visitors around the first weekend in December 2020.

In the absence of much rumour, is it likely for Shedden to be retained in WTCR by Audi? Has really struggled this year... I know the Audi has not been as potent in 2019 as it was previously but his performances have been really disappointed... Very few news articles reporting on him this year cannot be good for exposure!

Poor car or not the other Audi WTCR drivers managed to wring the odd good performance and result out of it from time to time.

No Audi or VW replacements for 2020. Will SLR / WRT / CTY keep running old cars or be forced to switch? Will the FIA up the 4 car limit or will we see more Alfas, Peugeots, Renaults, Opels etc?

Are you certain about Audi? The post mentions Volkswagen only, no word about Audi.

It certainly doesn't smell good, does it?

They already confirmed there will be no new TCR Audi too.

Which leaves Cupra. But they seem to be putting all their development funds into eTCR instead.

Yeah, you're right, I've forgotten about it and sort of didn't connect it with electricity-based decision as Audi still competes in DTM.

If so I imagine the 4 model limit will be raised to 6. Target Competition or Englster running Hyundais? Josh Files in?

Maybe there is an opening for Peugeot to return? MG to follow the footsteps of L&C?
